STALIN'S HAND IN SPAIN

securing general information for relaying to the Kremlin.
Our agents in Berlin and Rome, Hamburg and Genoa, Bremen and Naples, duly reported to us the powerful aid that Franco was receiving from Italy and Germany. This information I dispatched to Moscow, where it was received in silence. I still got no secret instructions regarding Spain. Publicly also the Soviet Government had nothing to say.
The Comintern, of course, made a great deal of noise, but none of us practical men took that seriously. This organization, then already nicknamed the "gyp joint," had been relegated to a quiet suburb of Moscow, and from being the intended torch of international revolution had become a mere adjunct of Stalin's foreign policy-sometimes useful in indirect ways, at other times a considerable nuisance.
Its one great service had been to launch the international policy known as the Popular Front. This meant that in every democratic country the obedient members of the Communist Party should drop their opposition to the ruling powers and, in the name of "democracy," join forces with other political parties. The technique was to elect, with the aid of "fellow travellers" and dupes, governments friendly to the Soviet Union. This had been of some real help to the Kremlin in several countries. In France, indeed, the Front Populaire had elevated the moderate Socialist, Leon Blum, to power. But now in the Spanish crisis, with the Comintern shouting for the Republic and issuing battle-cries against Franco, its own Premier Blum launched, with the backing of London, the policy of non-intervention in Spain.
In Spain itself the shouts of the Comintern were still more futile, for the number of its adherents there was almost infinitesimal-only 3,000 men in the Communist
